Hodge Podge Tomato Soup

So, I was thinking about what to make for lunch today and I had a thought. I know, shocker, I had a thought! See, I have all these tomatoes that I got from my friend Candy's garden that I need to use up before they go bad. So, I decided to make some Tomato Soup. See the problem with making things from a recipe is sometimes you don't always have all the ingredients. So, being broke I REALLY did not want to go to the store. So I made up my own recipe! Here's what I made:

4 large tomatoes, peeled (I hate skin)
2 tablespoons of garlic, minced
2-3 tablespoons dried savory herbs (or just use whatever you have)
2 cups (or so, i didn't really measure) of milk
1/2 cup of water
1 can of cream of potato soup (undiluted)
1 teaspoon of cinnamon (yes, cinnamon)

Cut up tomatoes into small chunks. Put all ingredients into a saucepan. Bring to boil over medium-high heat. Turn down heat to medium and cook for approx. 10 minutes.

Now this next part is optional, but I loved it. In a small bowl mix together a cup of biscuit mix and 1/4 approx (again, I don't measure stuff when I make it up) water or milk. Drop spoonfuls of biscuit batter into the soup (before you let the soup cook for 10 minutes). Yummy dumplings! I'm all about tomato soup and dumplings, it is yum!

And that's it. You're done and enjoy. I forgot to take a picture because I was so excited to eat it. Did I mention I was hungry and hadn't had lunch??

Trick or Treat!

These are the pics from my work today. A bunch of us dressed up for Halloween, I was actually surprised by the number of people that actually did dress up! It was kind of a crazy, fun day. People brought their kids in to go trick or treating at our desks. Man those kids made out like bandits!!

Occassionally I get crafty. This week is one of those weeks, so I decided to shar what I've made. Here are some pictures of things I made this week. The first is a crocheted newborn beanie that I made for my co-worker who is about to have a baby. The other picutre is some flower clips I made. I love flower clips, I wear them in my hair almost every day! :)

The Freak Honey Incident

A few weeks ago, I did something really stupid! I was trying to warm up some honey so that I could get it out of the little plastic bottle, so I plopped it into the microwave for 30 seconds. Not a good idea!! Apparently, sugar gets real hot, real quick! When I pulled it out, it started shooting out of the plastic bottle right onto my arm. Let me just tell you, that hot honey hurts like the dickens! I put my arm under cold water, but it wasn't working. It was so bad I was crying. So I decided to run down to the InstaCare around the corner. They put some burn ointment on my arm and wrapped it up. Of course, since my body was "compromised" I had to have a tetanus shot. So, I got some pain meds and some bacitracin (topical antibiotics) and went home to die. I was able to make it to work the next day (barely) which I only did because some of my coworkers were on vacation. Luckily, I was able to leave early. I felt pretty stupid when I had to relate the circumstances of my burns (two second degree burns by the way). As one of my coworkers put it, "so basically the honey bear crapped all over you." Yes, yes it did.

Here's one of my burns. The other is on the inside of my arm, right above my elbow. Ouch!
